Influenster Iconic VoxBox 2018

Hey guys! I have been very busy this past 2 months so the posts have been coming slow. I have a backlog of it now. To kick things off again, today’s post is on what I’ve received in the Influenster Iconic VoxBox 2018 a while ago. Here are the contents of the box:

My favorite item is the Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores. I actually already own this product and was about to run out so this came just in time! The most interesting item is the Patchology Wink & A Kiss Kit. I will post a full review on it soon! It was very interesting to try — something out of the box for me. Stay tuned for detailed reviews in some blog posts in the future!

ipsy December 2013 Glam Bag

Hey guys! I got my December 2013 Glam Bag from ipsy and I’m so excited! I actually liked this bag just as well as last month’s (shown here). First off, the bag that it comes with is super cute. Just when I didn’t think they can top off last month’s bag they managed to wow me with this sexy, black little number. Read on for my take on the ipsy December 2013 Glam Bag.

Again, I LOVE the bag! This is another bag that I’m keeping for sure since I can use it as a clutch and it’s so perfect for this Holiday season! I am relatively pleased with everything in this month’s bag, but the fragrance leaked out of the small vials. No worries though since there’s more than half in each vial left for me and my man to try it out and enjoy. The fragrances are from English Laundry, a brand I’ve never heard of, and it’s their Signature scent for him and for her. It is light and vanilla-ish on first impression. It’s pretty strong at first but it fades nicely into this pleasant scent. I think I have something similar to it at home. The POP Beauty Bright Up Your Life Eye Shadow Trio is something that I’d normally keep, but I have so many eye shadows already that I’m trying to use up. I’m keeping this as part of a giveaway prize for later. It does have 3 great colors to glam up your eyes for an everyday or a smoky eye look. I’m on the fence on whether I should keep or give the J.Cat Beauty Big Lip Pencil. I think I’m gonna drop this into my giveaway or gifting pile as well since I got the Caramel Mocha shade. I’m not a huge fan of browns really even though I’ve been told it suits me pretty well. I’m passing on the Be A Bombshell The One Stick in Girl Crush. Last month’s bag included the Be A Bombshell Lip Crayon that I went gaga over, but I read a decent amount of reviews on this item (in this shade) and it’s looking to be a pass for me. Girl Crush it a pale pink with shimmer and only the shimmer is going to come through I would think. I may be more inclined to keep it if I had gotten this in one of the 2 other darker shades. I have an item that does exactly what this one promises in a darker shade. I also think it doesn’t even come close to Josie Maran’s Argan Color Stick in terms of formula. I’m saving that Andrea Strip Lashes for a special occasion. I’ve only used fake lashes a few times in my life and most of those were for weddings where I’m part of the bridal party. This will come in handy for something next year possibly. It’s one of those things that I don’t think about getting and end up trying to get it last minute. It’s a great bag overall, but last month’s is still my favorite. Photos were taken when I was at work so the background is pretty drab unfortunately.

Kiss Ever Pro Lashes Starter Kit

I’m no stranger in using fake lashes. I’ve had them when I was part of the bridal party in a wedding and one other time just cause I was passed on a set to try out. I’m not a huge fan cause of the thought of peeling them off from my eyelids after use. Being that I got a set from my Influenster Beauty Bloggers VoxBox 2012, I got another chance to give them a try again. Here’s Kiss Ever Pro Lashes Starter Kit.

Kiss Ever Pro Lashes Starter Kit

The Influenster insert boasts about this product: “Bring the salon home with this eyelash starter kit, complete with eyelashes, adhesive, and applicator. This latex-free glue has 24-hour hold, for lashes you can bat all day and all night.”

Verdict? Worth a try. I love the look it gives. It’s very drastic and dramatic. You can obviously tell that it’s fake, but I wouldn’t mind sporting these in special events or occasions. I’m not a pro at applying them, but I can tell that practice makes perfect. The applicator tool didn’t help me much, but I think it will come in handy with practice as well. Make sure to try and follow the instruction the best that you can. The adhesive works really well and removal wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. That was the part I was most apprehensive about. A good eye makeup remover will definitely help or you can wait til they come off loose and gently remove them by peeling them off. Don’t force it to peel off though if it doesn’t budge easily. That’s when the eye makeup remover comes into play.

Each kit is reasonably priced at $5.99 and is available at is available at various major drugstores and mass retailers like Walmart, CVS, Target and Walgreens. You can check the list of locations they are carried at here.
